Well, the 2006 Street Fair has come and gone. The rain threatened a bit, but it never really dumped on us! Although, maybe it was the threat of rain that kept so many people away this year - it was a rather quiet day, especially in contrast with the other Street Fairs that we played this summer.
The parade, too, was a bit anti-climactic. The Lions of Batucada (a Brazilian-style parade band) didn't make it, so it was a quiet parade, and kind of short, as well.
And speaking of no-shows, our fire dancer also didn't make it, so the Clown House show was not what it usually is.
But the highlight of our day was SHMANARCHIST IDOL!
Talented people from all over Alberta Street regaled us with their showmanship, and an amazing young juggler named Joe went home with first prize: a $25 gift certificate to Collage!
Many thanks to Collage, for the donation, and here's their plug:
Check out their amazing selection, at 16th and Alberta, and ask about reserving the workroom for your next party! We go there for most of our art supplies, and love the place. They even carry Dawg Snax!
For those of you who missed SHMANARCHIST IDOL, all is not lost! This is a fun concept, and we want to keep doing it! So stay tuned here, for you next chance to be a star!
